    On August 4, the American Center for Law and Justice obtained over 400 pages of documents related to Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting with Former President Bill Clinton last summer. When the original Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request was filed under the Obama Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation had denied that any such records existed; now, approximately 413 pages of documents have been made available to the public. The ACLJ explains: "First, the Comey FBI lied to us. Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any...

    The Trump administration notified the United Nations Friday that the U.S. intends to officially withdraw from the Paris climate accord, the Department of State announced. Following the procedure laid out in the agreement, the United States will withdraw “as soon as it is eligible to do so.” The earliest the U.S. can begin officially withdrawing from the accord is Nov. 4, 2019, under the terms of the Paris agreement. The notice to the UN is largely ceremonial, and the earliest a full withdrawal can be finalized is November 2020, one year after official proceedings have begun, The Hill reports. President...

    On Friday, Michael Savage -- conservative talk show host and Berkeley Ph.D. in nutritional ethnomedicine -- referenced Nathaniel West's classic 1939 novel about the burning of Los Angeles, The Day of the Locust, to describe what will occur in the USA should Trump be brought down by his assorted "Globalist" enemies. People will “resort to mob violence” when they “are finally aware of the fact that they’ve been tricked by their society, and that no matter how hard they work as middle class people” they are denied.“That is what’s going to happen in this country,” Savage said. “You have not...

    Legislation to set up gun safety courses at Wisconsin public high schools is being blasted as “inappropriate” by state Democrats. Other opponents of the bill—including Madison psychotherapist Laurie Asplund—suggest that a gun safety course will only feed a “gun culture” at the schools. According to Fox 6, Rep. Ken Skowronski (R-Dist. 82) is one of the sponsors of the bill that would create the safety courses. Skowronski argues that opponents of gun safety courses have things backward. He says trap and target shooting teams are already popular, and increasingly so. In light of this, the gun safety courses are a...

    WASHINGTON – The Republican Party should have done more to shut down the birther movement that Donald Trump led, one GOP senator said Sunday. “I wish that we, as a party, would have stood up, for example, when the birtherism thing was going along,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “A lot of people did stand up but not enough.” Long before he was a presidential candidate, Trump led an effort to discredit President Obama by doubting he was a US citizen. Obama was born in Hawaii.
  • The Senate's last best chance to end the Obamacare disaster

    The Washington Examiner ^ | August 4, 2017 | Justin Haskins
    One week ago, Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Dean Heller, R-Nev., met with President Trump and top White House officials to discuss their plan to attain the 50 votes necessary in the Senate to replace the Affordable Care Act. Although the proposal isn't perfect, it could end up being the Senate's last chance to stop the seemingly inevitable Obamacare death spiral. Since January, Congress has repeatedly tried and failed to find a formula for healthcare success. At the heart of the debate has been the fundamental philosophical differences between the conservative wing of the Republican Party and...

    Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown suggested that the Republican foreign policy establishment may want to see President Donald Trump impeached after dining with two of its most prominent members. Last weekend, the legendary California Democrat wrote about a dinner invitation he received from former Secretary of State George Shultz and his wife Charlotte. In his San Francisco Chronicle column, Brown revealed that former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger attended the private dinner along with Michael Bloomberg, California Governor Jerry Brown (and his wife Anne), Tom Steyer, California gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newson (and his wife Jennifer), and San Francisco Mayor Ed...

    Aside from the make believe fake news scandals Democrats and their allies in the liberal press continue to push about Russia and President Trump, a real scandal involving cybersecurity issues has enveloped Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. Ms. Schultz is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee and a long-time crony of Hillary Clinton, the two-time loser in her bid to become president. At the heart of the scandal is Imran Awan, 37, a Pakistani-born Muslim. Hired as an information technologist by Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., in 2004, he started working for Ms. Schultz in 2005.

    Washington Times ^ | 03 August 2017 | Stephen Dinan
    The Obama administration “misled” Americans into thinking signing up for Obamacare would be cheaper than it really was, according to an inspector general’s report Thursday that said the IRS dramatically understated the actual cost of enrolling. IRS officials sent the letters to try to prod Americans to comply with the 2010 health law’s “individual mandate” that penalizes them for not holding coverage. But as part of the letters, the IRS said most people could find plans for $75 a month or less once government subsidies were figured in. That was untrue — in fact, the average cost was more than...

    A devastated family wants answers after their beloved Catahoula hound dog was shot and killed last month in their front yard by an Ocoee police officer. But a police report released this week sheds little light on what happened. Stevens Bertrand, a school resource officer at Ocoee High, shot the 11-year-old dog named Duke in the head outside Charlie and Lisa Brooks’ home on July 17. “I couldn’t believe something like that happened. I was completely shocked,” Charlie Brooks said. The incident has prompted questions and outrage from the Brooks family, who expressed frustration at the Police Department’s vague description...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said on Sunday that the special counsel investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election needs permission from the Department of Justice to expand his investigation if he finds evidence of an unrelated crime. In an interview with Fox News Sunday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 campaign and President Donald Trump's campaign's potential ties to Russia was "not a fishing expedition." "If he finds evidence of a crime that is within the scope of what Director Mueller and I have agreed is the appropriate...

The holiday will be celebrated each year on Obama’s birthday beginning in 2018.

Stephanopoulos continued to press the question of why the Trump team's narratives varied, but Conway responded by turning to topics including ObamaCare, Benghazi, and campaigning in Michigan. "There's nothing. There's nonsense. It was a ridiculous meeting," she said. "It was nothing. People want to offer their services and have meetings all of the time, believe me. I know you know this. But let's look at the consequence: no follow-up. No results." ...

    Bill Kristol, a prominent “Never Trumper” and one of national security adviser H.R. McMaster’s fiercest defenders and allies, is reportedly scheming to primary or oust President Donald Trump so Republicans do not renominate him in 2020. According to a New York Times report, Kristol “said he had begun informal conversations about creating a ‘Committee Not to Renominate the President.'” “We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism,” Kristol told the liberal Times reporters. On Twitter, Kristol, the limelight-seeking saboteur, seemed proud that he was again quoted in a legacy media paper,...

    One-by-one, key players at Fox News are being taken out by allegations that remain untested in any judicial proceedings. On Friday evening August 4 at 8:23 PM, an article was published at HuffPost: “Fox News Host Sent Unsolicited Lewd Text Messages To Colleagues, Sources Say.” The article had obviously been in preparation for some time, since it included a statement from Bolling’s attorney defending his client. The host is Eric Bolling, 54, a friend of President Donald Trump, and a defender of the president in his role as a prominent anchor and co-host on the Fox News channel (FNC). Friday...

  • Al Jazeera: Israel seeks to shut offices and take network off air

    Communications Minister Ayoub Kara alleged that the channel supported terrorism, and said both its Arabic and English-language channels would be taken off air. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accuses the broadcaster of "incitement". Al Jazeera has condemned the decision. The Israeli government said it was basing its decision on a similar ban by several Sunni Arab states, amid their diplomatic rift with Qatar, which hosts and funds Al Jazeera. Mr Kara said cable TV providers had agreed to take the network off the air, but that closing its Jerusalem bureau would need further legislation. "Al Jazeera has become the main...
